It only takes a moment to stop your heart
when the veins clench
and your breath trips over that singularly horrifying knowledge,
cleaving reason from thought.
Preserved like leaden amber
becoming numb and immobilized
for an eternity
I see the world with a fixed gaze
dilated pupils darkened indefinitely.
My Love sees my every detail
flaw, defect, sin
And detects my confounded posture.
He wraps me in the warm coils of His arms
Melting my jaded state with such intensity
That I am liquified with tears and a surge of fiery truth filling my lungs;
liberated from the resin of my past.
